Literary Tourism, the Trossachs and Walter Scott by Nicola J. Watson Literary Tourism, the Trossachs and Walter Scott, Paperback (March 2012)

Exploring the potent appeal that links books, places, authors and readers, these essays examine tourism in the Trossachs both before and after 1810. It considers how Sir Walter's writings responded to the landscape, history and literature of the region, and traces his impact on the tourists, authors and artists who thronged in his wake.

Romantics and Victorians by Nicola J. Watson Romantics and Victorians, Paperback (November 2011)

This text approaches European romanticism by considering the idea of the romantic author and the romantic inner life,with readings from Wordsworth, Shelley and de Quincey. It explores Victorian culture through a reading of ideas of 'home' and 'abroad' in Emily Bronte, Arthur Conan Doyle and Robert Louis Stevenson.
